OBJECTIVE: Pre-eclampsia, growth retardation and preterm delivery are the most common reasons leading to increased maternal and perinatal mortality. The increased expression of hypoxia induced factors, such as HIF-1, triggers the overexpression of anti-angiogenic genes. The aim of this study was to determine the transcriptional activity of individual pro- and anti-angiogenic markers (VEGF, HIF-1, sEng, Flt-1, PlGF-1) in maternal blood samples from patients with spontaneous preterm labor, preterm labor in combination with pre-eclampsia and fetal growth restriction in comparison with physiologically terminated pregnancies...

The peptide relaxin has gained considerable attention as a new vasoactive drug, largely through its beneficial therapeutic effects in cardiovascular disease. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that relaxin treatment alleviates systemic vascular dysfunction characteristic of hypertensive diseases of pregnancy. We investigated vascular effects and mechanisms of relaxin action in: i) pregnant relaxin-deficient (Rln-/-) mice with enhanced responses to angiotensin II (AngII), and ii) arteries pre-incubated ex vivo in trophoblast conditioned media (TCM) to induce endothelial dysfunction...

OBJECTIVES: Inflammation and angiogenesis are a significant element of pathogenesis in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The FLT-1- triggering factor for production of proinflammatory cytokines-might contributes to inflammation in patients with RA. Association of the FLT-1 polymorphisms with different "angiogenic diseases" suggests that it may be a novel genetic risk factor also for RA. The aim of the study was to identify FLT-1 genetic variants and their possible association with sFLT-1 levels, susceptibility to and severity of RA...

BACKGROUND: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) plays a pivotal role in angiogenesis and is overexpressed in many kinds of malignant tumors. Soluble VEGF receptor 1 (sVEGFR-1/ soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 [sFlt-1]) plays a role as an inhibitor of VEGF, and an antitumor effect has been shown in several studies using sFlt-1. Recently, in addition to its antiangiogenic effect, it was reported that sFlt-1 has direct cytotoxicity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Transfection of sFlt-1 plasmid DNA was performed in the BeWo choriocarcinoma cell line...

INTRODUCTION: Previous studies have shown that indoleamine 2, 3-dioxygenase (IDO), an immunosuppressive enzyme that converts tryptophan to kynurenine, is expressed in the placenta and might play a role in the maintenance of pregnancy, although its associations with the pathogeneses of preeclampsia (PE) and fetal growth restriction (FGR) remain unclear. The objective of this study was to investigate the differences in IDO expression among normal, PE, and FGR placentas, and the associations between IDO expression and clinical symptoms, or the expression of fms-like tyrosine kinase receptor-1 (Flt-1)...

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clonal disorder of hematopoietic progenitor cell. In AML, a mutation in FLT3 is commonly occurs and is associated with poor prognosis. We have previously reported that thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidine derivative compound 1 exhibited better antiproliferative activity against MV4-11 cells which harbor mutant FLT3 than AC220, which is a well-known FLT3 inhibitor, and has good microsomal stability. However, compound 1 had poor solubility. We then carried out further structural modification at the C2 and the C6 positions of thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidine scaffold...
